About ‘The Great Soul Food Cook-Off’
Today, we see Black culture recognized like never before in music, film, fashion, TV, sports and more, but that same cultural recognition remains long overdue in the kitchen. OWN partnered with discovery+ via the original series, “The Great Soul Food Cook-Off,” in a cooking competition that spotlights the culinary contributions of Black chefs with challenges designed to highlight the past and present of soul food. Eight chefs will go head-to-head throughout the show in this high-stakes, spiritual, and emotional competition, but only one competitor will take home the grand prize of $50,000.
